Display .pdf and .dwg files

Hi ! So I have a data table with .pdf and .dwg files and I would like to display the selected file. I tried using pdf Viewer but most of the pdf files are too heavy to be displayed. Do you have any ideas on how to implements this feature to my dashboard ? Let me know if you need more information.


Thank you in advance for your return.

Hi @Zakaria_Soual ,

What is your connection mode?  How about trying  to use  PDF connector? What type is your dataset?

When working with the PDF connector on datasets in a Premium capacity, the PDF connector does not properly make the connection. To enable the PDF connector to work on a dataset in a Premium capacity, configure that dataset to use a gateway, and confirm the connection to that dataset goes through the gateway.

Connect to PDF files in Power BI Desktop 


If I have misunderstood your meaning, please provide a screenshot with the issue.
